And lead men astray,
You cash emotional cheques
We can't possibly pay.
You act like a damsel
When it's us in distress,
Then cry on our shoulders
And leave us a mess.
You promise us things
You have no intention to give,
Then you make sure we're broken
With no will to live.
Forever means nothing
To you it's unreal,
There's no way to prevent
The hearts you will steal.
You'll leave without warning
No goodbye or farewell,
Then forget us completely
While we rot in our hell.

kicking beach balls in the air
where did the summers go, my dear,
and how did we end up here?
diamonds sprinkled over the sea,
Lucy nowhere to be found,
can you truly love the nighttime
when I'm the only one who makes a sound?
I kept those letters from moons ago
the ones you told me to hide away
perhaps under my bed, underneath the floor
you were always straight and narrow
in love with my wind,
I made us sing, through the summer nights,
where you would find me and make love

unseen darkly but electric.
A mystery, phenomenon,
white fire dancing on my skin.
I push my way through thunder,
unraveling static from the clouds,
to strike the earth with passion, crackling and alive.
But you only see in color, don't you?
and feel the thick wind on your lips.
If you looked in shadows and in dreams,
you might find me lurking there,
a crown of black electrons
wrapped around my brow.
I love you like dark matter,
heavy wrapped in hypotheses;
But just because you don't see it,
doesn't mean that it's not there.

break on the cobblestones, the tower shake.
Were you there this morning as the city collapsed, oh angel of death?
Were you glaring up at an ash-flower heavens,
threatening them for keeping us apart,
for forcing us to break all contact; nine months and counting?
Beautiful disaster, did you do something stupid like that;
your ice-blue orbs glowing with childish anger
as you cursed your family; a league
of star-dust wings, paper souls, hurricane?
“Don't patronize me!”
The fire in your chest, darling, is still
strong, even after the fact; an argument
with your father up above.
Still glowing, your heart is a phoenix,
trapped inside a sheltered Victorian rib-cage.
I can see it beating its ruby wings painfully
through your shirt and I approach, pressing
my hand against the wound; the smudge of your anxiety.
“Calm down,” I whisper.
You could never keep cool under pressure.

You gaze at me like I’m something holy
And it’s funny because I always thought you were the ethereal one
A fallen angel, whenever you gave the wrong answer
Nothing short of a deity
When you held me and lit me up like Apollo in his blazon chariot
But now, God, how I want to be a god for you
I’ve got to keep you worshiping so I feel worthy
I don’t know what I did to make you look at me like that
Maybe it’s the way an alcoholic stares at a drink
Maybe we aren’t so good for each other
I haven’t slept well in months
But you keep on sinning and I keep on saving your soul

full of sadness until
she curled her fingers
in my hair and spoke
She is a beautiful mess--
an ever-raging fire
she touches until now
she is afraid of falling.
I want to hold her
in my arms again,
I want to cradle her
body to sleep
like she let me
that night when the
rain fell to the Earth
and after we baked those
cookies that she burned.
I want to tame her fire
and show her my own
'cause only fire
can fight fire
and stay alive
in the end.

To distance ourselves
From the love that has grown
But if we are both feeling
The same thing
Why must it be wrong?
I know you're afraid to love
But that doesn't change the fact
That it's already happening
I will give you
That which you seek
If you take a chance
And break away
From the apprehension
And fear of the unknown
Somewhere, deep down inside,
You know just how real
My love truly is
Please don't deny
Both of us
A lifetime of happiness
Because of the past
Escape from whatever chains
Bind you to previous memories
You don't have to forget them
But I can help you
Make new ones
And will love you eternally

I love the way you look at me,
and how you always call me beautiful.
I hope to grow with you,
to share my feelings I have for you.
Do you love me,
as much as I love you?
How much can you show me your love,
and make me feel like Im your only one.
I will always love you,
and I mean the words that I say

Your face hidden behind blue lines and white lies,
Between memories I pretend to be true,
And hopes I pretend to be false.
In love with the lies I told myself,
In love with the script I wrote for you.
In love, in love, in love.
Is this love?
I wish I could say you broke my heart. The ending of a million books. Stolen normalcy.
You did not play your role,
So I played them all.
How opaque are these blue lines
And white lies
When all faces are mine?

A round of groans
Echoed through the classroom
As our English teacher
Explained our year-long project to us.
She began by asking,
"Who here enjoys reading?"
When no one replied right away,
I noticed a tiny movement
Coming from your direction.
Simultaneously ducking your head
And raising your hand,
You were the only one
Brave enough to admit it.
You looked around timidly
As most of the class turned
To watch you answer the question,
"What do you enjoy reading?"
You mumbled the word "fiction,"
And looked at me.
When I gave you a smile,
You returned it.
Our teacher asked,
And I raised my hand too.

I love the way you run your hands through your short hair.
I love the way you put you head in your hands when you get overwhelmed.
I love your smile
and the way your eyes sparkle.
I love your dumb hoodie
and your fucking foo fighters shirt.
I love how gentle your hands felt on my cheek
and how broad your shoulders were.
I love how you call me beautiful
and I love how I believe you for once in my god forsaken life.
You asked me why I found it difficult to write positive poetry and this is me telling you that it's because I struggle to find the right amount of words to describe how you make my stomach sink like never before.
You make the moon look dull and constellations play games in your eyes as they moved and shone as you looked off into a different direction.
I put my head against your chest and felt your breath hitch and I thought your heart stopped, but when it beat inside your chest I could have swore I heard my name.
That's all what I could live off for

She deserved to know what I so badly needed to say.

The Storm Who Saved the Demon KingA black and eerie night it wasThe Storm Who Saved the Demon King21 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The beast chained up inside
A vast and stunning night it was
As gaze began to rise
The moon so black, the stars so bright
A silent heartbeat still
A gust of wind, a gentle blow
The pulse of the unknown
A stoke of peace a stroke of calm
A darkness now arose
And trees so high up to the world
But was it now? Who knows?
A blazing hot, yet ice-blue flame
The creature there within
Inmidst the dark, warm night you see
A blink but not a sin
A fireplace in forest's sleep
The one true only glee
The ember, ardor in the gray
A flight of pain and scream
Carried away within the wind
So silence calming be
A crazy smell of short cut grass
A smile that could forever last
A calm before a rising storm
The warrior should've stayed to mourn
When leaves the ground in gentle bliss
But reaching down a farewell kiss
So sudden yet indefinate
To life but soul he'll never miss
At random said small breeze turns wild
In memory on soul bound tides
A rumble jolt of entity

I have walked a thousand miles to be here.
Crossed twenty thousand nautical miles.
Drifting away from whirls,
Sucked in with tornadoes,
Absorbed multitude of lightning bolts.
Raged with failures,
Overjoyed with success,
Drenched in anger and love,
Have I come.
No canyon have I witnessed deeper than your eyes,
No blossom softer than your touch.
No maiden gentler than your kisses,
No music sweeter than you talk.
And no law of the classical physics,
More obvious than our love,
No barriers to keep us apart.
No cliff to make us drop.
So have I come.
Unravelled and undone,
To find out a newer self.
To be with you at last.

At last I see the light;
Though the light is far away,
Nonexistent and greying
In a thick skull
Divided into separate levels.
Each more inexperienced than the last.
Each deeply feeling for a past.
Simple Moments of IntimacyI watch you drinking coffeeSimple Moments of Intimacy12 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
your eyes stare into mine over the rim,
everything is conveyed in that half-gaze,
my spine quivers like a bow string,
my heart turns over and my body
I sit in taut awareness,
the distance between us
is painfully near, yet unbearably vast,
you command me with silence,
the slow, subtle way your lips
curl up pulls the core of my being
My fingers hover inches
from your hand,
half-afraid of the electric jolt
of your touch that will send
all my nerve endings on edge,
yet wanting nothing more
than the feel of your skin.
It is a dance of wills,
without speaking we know we both
desire the same thing
but we enjoy the game,
testing who can hold out the longest,
before we inevitably fall into
each other's embrace.
The first timeThe first time you explained the meaning of the word petrichor, you told meThe first time12 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
you were a pluviophile, and that the two
were not synonymous. You said
that loving rain was not the same as
loving the sound of droplets shattering fragile
leaves, how loving a person in their entirety is not
the same as being in love with how they make you feel.
The first time I told you I loved you, it was raining
outside and you only looked out the window,
and told me,
“Rain is beautiful, and ephemeral,” and I don’t think you understood
how I could never look at the rain because
for me, you are eternity, you are the waves crashing
along the ocean shore, the mountains
reaching for that open space of blue, the
galaxies swirling forever and ever in darkness.
